Chernobyl + 20 Exhibition
Photo Exhibition in the European Parliament on the Chernobyl nuclear disaster
Photographer Robert Knoch and reporter Antoinette de Jong have documented the impact of nuclear radiation in the regions of Mayak, Semipalatinsk, Chernobyl and Tomsk-7 since 1999.
These photographs are testimony to the continuing medical, economic and social consequences of the thriving nuclear industry in Eastern Europe. The people who are subjects of these photographs must cope with birth defects, cancer, and other debilitating health issues due to the permeating presence of nuclear radiation.
A book of their work, Certificate No. 00358/ Nuclear Devastation in Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, the Urals and Siberia is published with the support of Greenpeace International and Unicef Netherlands [ISBN 90 5330 506 8]
The pictures are now available online:
